I wasn't nervous in the least, and since he was being so familiar, I put my arm around him.
Then he leaned over and placed his cheek against my face. It just seemed natural for me to reach for his free hand. It was shaking from his Parkinson's syndrome, and he started to pull it away until he realized that I didn't care. Once he realized this, he relaxed and let me take his hand in mine. All this time the photographer had been standing with camera at the ready, waiting for us to get set. She finally let the huge Polaroid drop to her waist and demanded, 'Are you two finished?'
